The pelting wind and rain surged in a downpour. My umbrella blew inside out. Rain pellets coated my glasses. In spite of a seemingly endless search to find my parked car, efforts had become fruitless. A stranger appearing from nowhere offered to assist. He searched in one direction, I in the opposite. A call from the other side of the lot exclaimed my little red Chevy had been spotted! He went on his way completely soaked accepting only a hug and grateful thanks! Chivalry is not dead !
